Call for Chapters: Energy Justice - Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation (Palgrave Macmillan)

There is strong scientific evidence that human-induced climate change is a real threat and human activity is the main cause of this urgent problem; despite the existing evidence, fossil fuel consumption continues to rise, as well as global energy demand—under normal circumstances.  However, the COVID-19 crisis changed this scenario having an immediate impact on health, wellbeing, energy use, and CO2 emissions. Energy justice calls for a moral analysis of all current energy systems from legal, political, and philosophical perspectives. The energy law framework is developing rapidly in the U.S. and worldwide, especially environmental law and natural resources law (Salter et al. 2018). Energy policy systems are often detached from energy justice and ethics concepts (Jenkins et al. 2018). Energy justice is a relatively new concept as compared to environmental justice; first and foremost, energy justice is characterized as a certain tool for the policymaking process that seeks to identify when and where injustices occur and how to identify them. Energy justice is a transdisciplinary research agenda that has already received notable scholarly attention in such academic fields as law, philosophy, international relations, public administration, international development, politics, government, and (environmental) economics. We seek contributions that discuss energy justice and climate change mitigation and adaptation from various angles. This interdisciplinary edited volume is under contract with Palgrave Macmillan. By August 23, please send your CV and final chapter to co-editors: Dr. Elena Shabliy and/or Dr. Dmitry Kurochkin.
